A prince’s quest to prove his worth and rescue his beloved leads to a fantastic adventure filled with danger and mysticism in the Metropolitan Opera’s abridged English language version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute for families.
This English-language adaptation of the classic fairy tale, performed in a 100-minute version of the Met’s popular production by visionary theatre artist Julie Taymor, is the perfect introduction to opera for the whole family, as well as a treat for those who are already admirers of Mozart.
Julie Taymor, who won a Tony Award for the design of Disney’s The Lion King, fills the Met stage with dancing bears and twirling birds while expressing the deep themes of divine enlightenment in Mozart’s final opera.
James Levine conducts a dynamic cast of standout Mozarteans (Nathan Gunn, Ying Huang, Matthew Polenzani, Erika Miklosa, and René Pape) in Julie Taymor’s magical production, now an annual holiday treat at the Met with its eye-popping puppetry and stunning visuals.
The Magic Flute is sung in English, with subtitles.
A Met Opera HD Live Encore screening of the 30 December 2006 broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
